No-one said friendship was easy.
Things can’t get much worse for Teri Meyer. If losing her job at the university and the regular allowance from her dad’s factory isn’t bad enough, now her ex-best friend has gone and stolen her ex-husband! Well, to hell with them all. A few weeks in the countryside at her brother’s smallholding should do the trick – and the gorgeous and god-like neighbour might help.
But then there’s Declan, not to mention Duck’s Arse back in Yorkshire...
It’s not as if Lee Harper set out to fall in love with her best friend’s ex-husband. But, for once, her love life is looking up – except for all the elephants in the room, not to mention Mammy’s opinion on her dating a twice-divorced man. Perhaps things aren’t as rosy as she first thought. And now with one family crisis after another, Lee’s juggling more roles – and emotions – than she ever imagined.
Maybe sharing her life with a man wasn’t such a grand idea.
For fans of BRIDGET JONES, the FRIENDS trilogy continues in this heartwarming and hilarious hoot as two best friends navigate men, careers, family and rock bottom in this brilliant sequel to A FALLING FRIEND.

I just finished A Forsaken Friend, the second book in the Friends triology and sequel to last year’s A Falling Friend by Sue Featherstone and Susan Pape. The story follows Teri and Lee as they continue their tumultuous friendship. Teri is a mess after losing her job at the university and her allowance from her father when his business partner runs off with the money. Now she’s scrambling to find her place in the world with a series of not so good decisions regarding men and finances. Lee seemingly has it all going with her love life looking up, albeit with her BFF’s ex-husband, but a family crisis and Teri’s lack of support has everything whirling. A Forsaken Friend is really a humorous and enjoyable tale told from alternating perspectives of two lifelong friends who both love and can’t stand each other. Pape and Featherstone do a masterful job of depicting the same scenes from two different perspectives yet making each fresh and new. If you enjoyed A Falling Friend (which I did), you really need to read A Forsaken Friend because it’s a better book. If you haven’t read either, then get busy. It’s labeled as a chick-lit book, but anyone who enjoys flawed and real characters will like this one. Check it out.
